Clear Wood Preservative provides protection against rot and mildew on above ground exterior lumber. It is a clear, paintable wood preservative containing 2% Zinc from Zinc Naphthenate, designed for projects where no colour change is needed or projects that will be stained or painted. Use wood preservative on outdoor furniture, fences, decks, sashes, doors and millwork. Do not use on rubber lined fabric.
If a natural look is desired, wood treated with Clear Wood Preservative can be given an oil finish, or it can be painted, varnished or stained. Wait 48 hours before painting over surfaces treated with Clear Wood Preservative to ensure that the preservative is thoroughly dried.
To ensure thorough and even penetration of the preservative, make sure the wood is free of wax, varnish or other coatings. Wood must be thoroughly dry and clean before being treated.
Apply Clear Wood Preservative using a brush. For greater protection and for wood in direct contact with soil we recommend soaking the wood for up to 48 hours, depending on the thickness of the wood.
